WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT MERINO WOOL?
Merino wool comes from the fleece of Merino sheep, and it boasts some amazing properties. It is soft yet durable, fire resistant, temperature regulating, moisture wicking and odour resistant.
A BIT ABOUT MICRONS
The smaller the micron count, the finer the wool fibre will be. Wool typically falls in a range of 18–40 microns. These throws are made with supple 22 micron Merino wool, making them soft enough to cosy up with inside but durable enough for outdoor use.
Due to the nature of our products there may be some slight variation in sizing.
From time to time, your delicate product may need refreshing. We suggest airing outside, rather than washing. A steamy bathroom or a frosty night will also invigorate and refresh fibres.
For any spills or mishaps, we recommend spot cleaning. You can find more details here.
You may choose to dry clean and if so, we recommend discussing the care instructions with your chosen drycleaner before leaving your product.
We do not recommend machine washing your product, even if your machine has a delicate or hand wash cycle.

How warm is wool?
How we feel warmth can vary from person to person, but as a natural fibre wool is a great temperature regulator, naturally moisture wicking and breathable for maximum comfort.
Will wool pill?
Pilling is a natural part of the lifecycle of wool. Abrasion and friction are the most likely causes of pilling, but may be unavoidable over the life cycle of your natural fibre product.
The good news is that pilling is easily remedied. Simply remove the pills carefully, by hand or with a comb, for a good as new appearance.
Where are your products made?
We make everything right here at our mill in Launceston, Tasmania. From weaving, right through to cutting and finishing, our products don’t leave the mill until they’re on their way to you.
